Yarra Valley Weddings

Your Day, Your Way

Have you always dreamed of getting married at a winery?

Imagine having a winery all to yourself on your wedding day!

That’s what we offer you here at Bulong Estate – a boutique Yarra Valley winery, exclusively yours, on 120 acres shaped like an amphitheatre, with 80 acres under vine. You’ll be getting married at a winery whose grapes are sold to top shelf wineries such as Domain Chandon and Brown Brothers. And the small premium parcels of fruit we select each year to keep for our own wines, will be served to you and your lucky guests on your wedding day – you’ll be drinking wine that was grown, made and bottled here on-site. What a unique sense of place that gives your special day – as you sip on your wine, gazing with your partner at the views in every direction, and sense the terroir; the soil, the climate, the complete natural environment in which Bulong exists. And you’ll carry it with you, in your hearts, forever.

Why choose Bulong Estate for your wedding?

If you’re after a smaller wedding in a stunning location where you can have your ceremony, photos and reception all in the one place, with onsite experts who are flexible and there to help every aspect of your day run smoothly, then Bulong Estate in the Upper Yarra Valley is perfect for you.

Your wedding is all about you, about honouring where you both come from and celebrating your unique union – and at Bulong Estate we are here to help you realise your dream. Our job is to take the stress out of your wedding day, so you can focus on soaking it all in and having a totally brilliant day.

Matt and Monica live on the property with their children: Matt is the winemaker and manages the vineyard and makes the wine, while Monica manages the venue and functions – Bulong truly is a family affair. You’ll get to meet and work closely with them, in the planning and lead up to your wedding, and on the day itself. Because an event as special as your wedding needs seamless continuity, and they will ensure you have the best celebration, just the way you dreamed it.

Wedding Seasons

The hardest part about having your wedding at Bulong Estate, with its fairy tale views of mountains and vines, is choosing what time of year to hold it.
Summer with its sunny days is always popular and it is also the time for harvest and wine making.

Spring brings budburst, new growth and spring flowers, while Autumn is a burst of colour with the turning of the leaves both in the vineyard and the garden.
In Winter we prune the vines so they can sleep and the light is dramatic and perfect for wedding shots especially if you’re blessed with a blue sky day. At the end of the day, it’s about when works for you.

Memories…

So many special memories are made here: weddings, celebrations and parties of every kind. As soon as you arrive you’ll start to relax – being surrounded by so much greenery, space and natural beauty. Add to that some excellent food & wine, entertainment and your gorgeous friends and family and you have the perfect ingredients for a truly magical wedding.

Grapes were first planted at Bulong Estate in 1994, and when you enjoy a Bulong Estate wine at your party, you’ll know you’re drinking an eco-friendly wine, that leaves the tiniest of footprints, given the grapes having travelled no distance at all – from the vine to your glass.

“It was perfect. The venue was exactly what we were after, beautiful with a chill vibe, and the scenery was just stunning. In the lead-up Monica was calm, flexible, and helpful. On the day everything went so smoothly thanks to Monica and her staff, who thought of everything I didn’t, and went out of their way to make sure everything was just right so I didn’t have to worry. Both us and our guests had the best time.

I can definitely recommend the sparkling rosé too.”

“Bulong was everything we wanted. From the intimate nature of the venue, to the breathtaking views, & the friendly, easy going & accommodating manager, Monica.  Monica, thank you, you made everything so so easy for us. The food at our wedding is still be spoken about, along with the delicious Bulong estate wine, which all the guests loved. We had 60 of our closest family & friends & Bulong was the perfect venue. We could not recommend Bulong more highly.

Thank you once again!”

“Our wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful, Monica was THE most helpful person, listening carefully to how we imagined our wedding and doing everything she could to make it happen.  It was simply perfect. What we really appreciated most was how calm and attentive to details Monica was.”

Alex & Ezzi

“We are so happy we found this little gem in the Yarra Valley for our wedding.  Monica, your service was outstanding, nothing was a hassle.  All of our guests commented on the venue and the views all around the estate made a beautiful backdrop for our wedding photos.  If you’re looking for somewhere different for your wedding, and trying to find a venue with staff who are open minded and friendly to deal with, I’d highly recommend checking out Bulong, you might just discover the perfect place.”

Katie & Jaap

“We held a sit down outdoor wedding reception for around 60 people at Bulong Estate, and found the service impeccable. Monica and her team were on top of all the details, and we had a smooth and enjoyable experience. (Monica put us in touch with Essential Catering for the food, and were able to have an entirely gluten free menu, whilst also catering to a group of vegan guests.)

Highly recommended.”
